Exactly right, ... who's that member with the quote, "we may lose the game but you'll be hurting in the morning" at the bottom of all their posts? That's the mindset you gotta' have at this point, IMO.

That's right, own it. You get the same trophy whether you're the 5-11 Division champs or the 12-4 Division champs. It's not a question of why you're there, how you got there or even if you deserve to be there ... the opportunity has presented itself, so you might as well just get there, .

Re: Our two options

I'd imagine one of the top 5 moments in Seahawk history is their 7-9 Seahawks knocking off the heavily favored Saints.

I'm hoping we do the same, hopefully to the 49ers, Seahawks or Cowboys.

Re: Our two options

One thing is for sure, if we won the division at .500 or worse and then won a playoff game... The NFL would definitely change the playoff rules in the offseason because it was us.

Re: Our two options

Hell yes shoot for the playoffs. That means the rest of our division are watching at home. Even though it would probably be a short playoff run, it's a playoff run with no pressure, because nobody would be picking us.

Playoffs every time, no question!

You can pick up what is seen to be a great draft player only for them to become a bust. It happens so often in this league.

However, we should pick up any good surgeons who show up on the draft boards...

Re: Our two options

The Saints have had plenty of high draft picks. They don't guarantee success and they're nothing to be proud of.

The Saints haven't had many division wins in their history. A banner beats no banner no matter what the record is.

Re: Our two options

Playoffs! I agree that this team is majorly flawed but if we got in at 6-10 we'd be dangerous. Drew Brees would love to be the one to win a title with that record.
